Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Demandware has provided in this release financial information that has not been prepared in accordance with GAAP. This information includes non-GAAP net loss and non-GAAP net loss per share. Demandware uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally in analyzing its financial results and believes they are useful to investors, as a supplement to GAAP measures, in evaluating Demandware’s ongoing operational performance. Demandware believes that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results and trends and in comparing its financial measures with other companies in Demandware's industry, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors. Non-GAAP net loss and non-GAAP net loss per share exclude expenses related to stock-based compensation and the accretion of redeemable preferred. These amounts are often difficult to predict and often excluded by other companies to help investors understand the operational performance of their business. Non-GAAP financial measures that the Company uses may differ from measures that other companies may use. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. A reconciliation of GAAP to the non-GAAP financial measures has been provided in the tables included as part of this press release.
